Mother Veronica (nee Sophie Leeves) was born on October 1, 1823 in Constantinople of English Anglican parents. The atmosphere of Love in her home culminated in her outstanding love for God which was expressed in her tendency to serve the helpless, the afflicted and the sick.

Mother Veronica was a highly accomplished woman of strong faith, she was fluent in Greek, French, German her native English and several other languages. She came to India as Sister of St.Joseph of the Apparition. She concentrated on the education of girls, empowerment of women and the less privileged. She learnt the regional language - Malayalam to reach out to the poor and the needy along the Malabar Coast.
From here the Congregation has spread to most of the States of India and abroad.
